       jobcontrols - per-job controls for HylaFAX servers


       The  HylaFAX configuration parameter JobControlCmd specifies the script
       that is used to apply per-job controls on job characteristics  such  as
       the time-of-day to place a call.

       The  controls  program  should produce a simple line-based ASCII output
       containing a series of records of the form:
              param: value
       which is parsed the same manner as all HylaFAX config files.  Parameter
       values  are  parsed  exactly  as  specified  in hylafax-config(5); i.e.
       values with embedded whitespace may be enclosed in quote marks (``"'').

       Comments are introduced with a ``#'' character and extend to the end of
       the line.

       The order of entries in the output is important.   The  last  parameter
       value  overrides  any  previous  values.  If the requested parameter is
       defined in the output, then the last value  is  returned,  otherwise  a
       default value is used from the faxq configuration file.

       The  following  parameters may be specified on a per-job basis; consult
       hylafax-config(5)  for  a  description  of   each   parameter   (except
       RejectNotice which is described below).
       Tag                   Type       Default      Description
       MaxConcurrentCalls    integer    1            max concurrent jobs to process for a destination
       MaxDials              integer    unlimited    max phone calls to make to transmit a job
       MaxSendPages          integer    unlimited    max pages to permit in a send
       MaxTries              integer    3            max attempts to transmit a job
       Modem                 string     Any          ModemGroup to use for destination
       RejectNotice          string     -            rejection notice for transmit job
       TimeOfDay             string     Any          default time-of-day restrictions
       VRes                  integer    -            Vertical resolution
       UseXVRes              integer    -            Usage of extended resolutions

       The  Modem parameter controls which ModemGroup is used in sending faxes
       to the destination.  If the user assigns a ModemGroup  for  a  specific
       job  where  all  modems  are  outside  of  this  ModemGroup  matching a
       destination, then the value  of  Modem  is  overridden  by  the  user's
       assignment.   Likewise, if the user assigns a ModemGroup for a specific
       job where some, but not  all,  of  the  modems  are  included  in  this
       ModemGroup   matching  a  destination,  then  the  value  of  Modem  is
       overridden by the inclusive set of modems found in both.

       The RejectNotice parameter controls whether or not to  reject  jobs  to
       the  destination.  Jobs that are rejected are done so without placing a
       phone call and the associated message is returned to the job submitter.
       This  facility can be used to disallow calling sensitive phone numbers;
       for example
           RejectNotice: "Calls to emergency numbers are not permitted"

       The VRes parameter controls the vertical  resolution.  Possible  values
       are  98  (normal  resolution,  equivalent to sendfax -l option) and 196
       (fine resolution, equivalent to sendfax -m option).

       The UseXVRes parameter is used  to  enable  or  disable  the  usage  of
       extended  resolutions  supported by the receiver. Possible values are 1
       (enable extended resolutions usage, equivalent to  sendfax  -G  option)
       and  0 (disable extended resolutions usage).  This parameter supersedes
       the usage of VRes.

       In addition to the above parameters,  any  other  parameters  that  are
       specified  are automatically accumulated and passed to programs invoked
       by faxq, such as faxsend and pagesend.  This is a convenient  mechanism
       for  defining configuration parameters for all modems without having to
       modify each modem-specific configuration file.  For example,
           SessionTracing: 0x4f

       This  mechanism  also  makes  it  easy  to   control   transmit-related
       parameters  according to the destination phone number.  For example, to
       disable use of  ECM  and  restrict  the  transmit  speed  when  placing
       international phone calls one might use:
           DesiredBR: 3
           DesiredEC: 0
           DesiredDF: 1
